Default Does anyone recommend a good rear tire for a 2003 Suzuki SV650S?

I have the original Dunlop 220 on it now and I need to replace it. The matching front is in good shape, but I'd like to get a stickier tire. Any ideas?

I have an 2000 sv650 and i use metzeler sportec tires. Sportec give good sport bike grip for cornering and rain traction.http://www.us.metzelermoto.com/en_85..._front=1321500 ------

So far Ive run a Metzler M1, Dunlop 220 and 205 and a Continental Contitrack on my 03 sv650s and the best were the dunlop 220 and the Metzler M1. The metzler didn't last very long but then again none of my tires do, I ride pretty hard and live around a lot of curves. Honestly I couldn't tell all that much difference between the 220 and M1 but maybe thats just me. I will say this though, the continental sucked balls. From the time that it was on till I took it off my back was sliding around like I was on ice and it only lasted about 1500 miles so stay as far away from continental as you can but all that sliding around did make me a better rider, or course there other safer and better ways to become a better rider.And how in the world did you go four years without chaning your rear tire, I wish I could get that much out of mine. ------

I run Pilot Powers on my Ducati's they are super sticky and work well on the street/canyons and track.Most people love the PP's I have ran through a few pairs and have yet to be dissappointed.I was also impressed with a Pirelli Diable corsa. I rode another duc with the Diablos and they felt just as solid as the Powers. ------
